When McDonalds opened in Thailand did they reinvent the wheel? No they just added a few Thai food items....

Even Sunrise Taco offers Beef and Beans and they are tiny...

Hell any one can down load a Taco Bell menu from the USA..

So they dont know how to do a google search for a Taco Bell menu?

For F sake man do it right or dont do it at all....  

And McDonald's grew painfully slow until they added a slew of other market specific items.

 

That said, McDonald's does continue to offer their core products here, which (apparently) Taco Bell has not.

So.

Explain to an Englishman please;

What's 420 or Happy 420?

And what's bake or rebake?

Thanx in advance.

I reckon nationality is not the issue, it's your age.

Both "420" and "bake" refer to the odd act of taking the leaves and, preferably, buds, of a certain plant, rolling them in paper, setting light to the resultant cylinder and inhaling through it, presumably to help filter out the Bangkok smog.  

 

(I hadn't heard the term "bake" used since I was at university back in NZ, and had an exchange student from Wisconsin in several of my classes.  He was always going on about getting hold of some bakeables so he could get baked.  And was usually successful in his goal.)

And, this is apparently the story behind 420:

No Beef no Beans no Taco Bell.....No thanks......

 

Ditto... No beef, no beans, no sale...

 

As long as their menu remains as is, they won't be getting my business and they aren't a real Taco Bell in my book.

 

BTW, if you read Taco Thailand's Facebook page, there are as many or more Thais complaining about the lack of beef and beans on the menu as there are farangs doing so.

Not being a "real" Taco Bell I see as a plus...

I think most people here, Thais including, were hoping for the real, authentic thing -- not a fake imposter selling an amputated menu.

No, believe me, it's nationality.

I've been in and around weed, hash, and all the other good stuff all my adult life.

The "bake" word i have never, ever come across.

The 420 thing, now somebody mentions it, i have a vague recollection of reading about it somewhere.

But as a Brit, nah we never used either of those terms.

Far away, across Bangkok

The tolling of the Taco Bell

Brings the faithful to this thread

No beef and beans? We'd rather just have bread!

How does one say “Have it your way” in Thai?... :coffee1:

As this is not the Thai language forum, I'll spell it for you in English; DIY.

Anyone wanting to build a fast-food franchise in Thailand would be a fool to depend on the expat trade.

 

Taco Bell was full of Thais, not expats.

McDonald's in Thailand sells pork burgers for Thai that don't eat beef, McD's in Germany serves rabbit but all McD's have the core US menu with native dishes added for their local patrons.  Taco Bell should do the same.

Yeah, I don't think it's age.  I'm no spring chicken, but neither am I a gnarly rooster.  As I said earlier, I only heard "bake" from an American in the mid 80's, and hadn't before, and haven't since then (until this thread).  And 420 apparently began in 1971, and was popularised by the Grateful Dead, but I had to look it up.
